Time goes by and we develop new technologies but propaganda is still the same! Why change it if it still works?
You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.
PS: letÂs not forget how the rest of the world was living in 1950!
Thanks to the internet we do not need to rely on the propaganda machines anymore and can see firsthand for ourselves.

Subject: where's the beef?!!
I watch this piece and see some interesting facts, but wonder why it was named as it was since it does not talk at all about the actual coup of Iran's leader Mossadegh and his role in Iran's turn of events. The book "All the Shah's Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror" is great and fills in these most important recent events which have shaped today's Iran and Middle East. Let's all thanks the good ole foreign policy of our Western Democracies. You love 'em living here, but can't stand them abroad.

Subject: Iran, before the Ayotollah.
Very nice looking film that is a gorgeous tableu of Iran, before all the political turmoil broke out. We cover the religious history, the art, the natural history, town living, city living, the resources, and many other interestings facts about this Muslim country. Pretty interesting.

madd ghetto , but cool for being made in 1950's.

Why does it seem like Iran has not progressed that much? I think I saw those carpet makers and farmers last summer was I visited Iran. Haha!
